As part of Danbury's continuing effort to improve emergency services response, the City is looking to enhance communications capabilities.  The Danbury Fire Department is working on a project that will result in the placement of antennas and related equipment on a water tank located off Woodland Road in the The Reserve on the city's West Side.  But Danbury must acquire easements from property owners first.  In early discussions, Fire Chief TJ Wiedl says the owners have indicated they would be in favor of helping the City.  Councilman Ben Chianese asked if the easement would have to be purchased.  Assistant Corporation Counsel Robin Edwards responded that this is a friendly transaction. Mayor Mark Boughton suggested holding off after further questions from Councilman Paul Rotello.  The group agreed to a ceiling of $2,500 for the potential cost of the easement.  If the request is over that amount, he will return to Council.
